24-bit/96kHz Royalty-free Sound Design Collection
Kyma Ambiences is the third sound effects bundle created by Matteo Milani (U.S.O. Project). The generation of these “Artificial Reality Ambiences” starts entirely in Symbolic Sound Kyma – during the development of projectgenesismovie.com – from the processing of white and pink noise by filtering – in the time/spectral domains – and convolving these sources with custom FM, additive, formant and granular synthesis. The composition’s resource of sound material is drawn solely from these processed stochastic sound elements: coloured noise is a raw material already full of life and can be sculpted into a variety of temporal forms, movements and textures. The interaction with Kyma was typical of a composer who explored a device’s potential for sound transformation like a musical instrument. The goal was to obtain an organic and acoustic quality using only a restricted sound source, in order to evoke real spatial characteristics attached to each invented sound.
The sound effects collection will be released on May 25th @ 96kHz (native), plus publishing a budget version @ 48kHz (resampled). Kyma Ambiences is not only available in these two packages, but also as dual-layer separated “Elements”, suitable for recombinant stratification, varispeed and spatial positioning in the surround field:
All of the audio files have been embedded with metadata for detailed and accurate searches in your asset management software.
As the previous libraries, loudness normalization helped me to match the gain of multiple sound files to the target level of -23 LUFS (tech.ebu.ch/loudness).
Nice ambient piece
WOW is a vinyl record containing a single ultra-low frequency which will alter slightly depending on the mechanical components of your record player. Use more than one system to play several records simultaneously and the air around you will start pulsating.
Play 33 ⅓ Hz on 33 ⅓ rpm or 45 Hz on 45 rpm. Feel free to use the pitch wheel or even touch the record to control the sub-sonic wave field. Your choice of record players, the number of records and the character of your room create your individual listening experience.

Both sides of WOW contain just a single sine tone, the most simple sound there is. Its frequency is directly proportional to the rotation speed of the record player. This means on a standard setting of 33 ⅓ rounds per minute (rpm) you’ll hear an extremely low tone of 33 ⅓ cycles per second (Hz). Play it at 45 rpm and you’ll hear a slightly higher bass tone of 45 Hz.
These frequencies are very close to the lower limit of human hearing and will be more felt than heard. This sensation can be irritating for some, pleasant for others.
Move around and you will experience your room’s reaction to the sound – some spaces will be shaking, others may be still.
Cwejman MX4S is where all of the panning is coming from for each of the 4 channels. The Harvestman Piston Honda is making the static style noise on Channel 4: WMD Synchrodyne is making the semi step filter sound with help from the Harvestman Double Andore on Channel 3: The other strange drone sound is stacked audio out from the Wogglebug on Channel 2: And the Make Noise Phonogene is on channel 1. On the Phonogene I just hit some random notes with my Teenage Engineering OP-1 and recorded in a random off time loop and threw in some random slices.
Apart from showing off quite a basic stand for the Maschine, the song played definitely makes it worth while watching, details below:
For studio and stage – demonstrated by Berlin beatsmith Comfort Fit. The Maschine Stand fits both first generation Maschine models and the new black and white MK2 hardware controllers. Find out more: http://www.native-instruments.com/maschinestand

The new Machine Boy album has been released and its called ‘For all the thinkers in the room’. The album features nice electronic pop songs to spice up this Monday morning, listen below and order it here >>
Music iOS app demo of Drone FX. A great app for making ambient music and atmospheric sounds.
“This is my first go at it and still working out a few things, such as ending a sound. A few of the sliders don’t seem to do much but perhaps they do! I like though. You can get it through the app store, with a link below, for $2.99. ”
Drone FX has the following modes of operation:
– Auto (Generative music in all it’s glory)
– Manual (For the musician in you)
– Hybrid (Auto + Manual)
Users can play along with soundscapes generated in auto mode, or create ambient music without automation using the built-in keyboard(s).
Nice quirky synth sounds from Ellen Alien, enjoy

New nice instrumental electronica track from BT. Please be patient and listen till the drums get going
To be additive. I wish in some small way to bend the collective human narrative towards the positive.
To inspire untold (even to me) small leaps of faith that germinate and grow in people I will never know.
To make music that makes people feel connected & less alone. That inspires people to face life and even if they fail to do so with dignity.
BT’s “Le Nocturne de Lumière” is available on These Hopeful Machines:
